Big B bids adieu to close friend Amar Singh

Amar Singh passed away on 1 August. He was undergoing treatment in Singapore for kidney-related ailments. While his demise evoked reactions from political circles, his close friend Amitabh Bachchan was also deeply impacted. The 77-year-old actor, who on Sunday was tested Covid-negative and discharged from Mumbai’s Nanavati Hospital, shared a picture of him with his head bowed down. In the 1990s, Amitabh Bachchan and Amar Singh were regarded as inseparable. Amar Singh helped the actor when he had hit a financial slump. He later introduced Jaya Bachchan to politics. However, their friendship turned sour after Amar Singh was expelled from the Samajwadi Party. While he expected Jaya Bachchan to follow the suit, the latter decided otherwise and it deeply hurt him.

Post the “political betrayal”, Amar Singh went on to make some controversial statements about the Bachchan family, which put the final nail in the coffin. However, Amar Singh reached out to Big B in February this year and apologised on Twitter for his “over reaction” against the Bachchan family.

Along with Big B, actor Anil Kapoor also mourned the politician’s demise. He wrote on Twitter that Amar Singh was a “doston ka dost” as he was always there for somebody who needed him. He passionately loved films and its music. The actor also extended condolences to his bereaved family.

WASHINGTON: The Former Governor of California and Hollywood legend Arnold Schwarzenegger recently opened up about his family life behind the scenes of his governorship from 2003 to 2011.

Arnold said his four children weren’t happy with his transition from action movie star to the 38th governor of California. The Schwarzenegger family moved from Hollywood to Sacramento, where Arnold served for two terms.

“First of all, I think it is very important to let everyone know how much you kids hated my job. It was one of those kind of odd things where I just thought that: ‘Oh, my kids will be so proud of me being governor now. And all this stuff, but I don’t think that you guys really kind of connected with that. I think you were so used to what we were doing when I was on a movie set,” he said.

How has the journey been as a dancer and choreographer and how did it start?

Then gradually started with Marathi shows as a folk dancer and later on did my first stage show as a back dancer . Then did my first reality show as a contestant (Krazzy Kiya Re 2) and since then I have been doing different reality shows on different channels back to back.
